At the preseat time, he has over a hundred acres broken and about ninety acres planted. The soil in his region 18-49 is a light sandy loam but very rich. He declares that when the ground is well under cult! vation he can raise-a crop of corn without any rain, if the ground has been well wet I the previous fall. Lodge Pole Express. Took a Tumble. Yesterday morning about 7 o'clock H N. Hupp, who has the contract for build- ing the addition to the Metropolitan hotel, met with a serious accident When he had reached the top of a ladder at the side of the building his foot slip ped and he was precipitated to the ground below, a distance o,f about thirty feet, breaking his wrist ji two places and frac turing his skull, besides bruising him up pretty badly about the head and face. When he was first picked up it was thought he could not possibly recover, but Dr. Cotter, who is attending him says he will get along all right. Sidney Telegraph. Death by Lightning:. During the thunder storm on Friday evening A. W. Rankin whose home is on Clear Creek, was struck and instantly killed by lightning. He was plowing corn at the time in the open field. Sev eral persons were at work in an adjoin ing field at the time, and saw the bolt leap from the clouds and strike him on the top of the head. They hastened to him as quickly as possible, to find life entirely extinct. Mr. Rankin with his family has for some years resided in tho county and was universally esteemed by his neighbors, ne was about fifty-five years old. Ho leaves a wife and several children who have the general sympathy of the community in their sudden and sad bereavement. Broken Bow Statesmen, Alleged Murder. A meger and uncertain report was in circulation yesterday morning in the city concerning the alleged murder of Fred 'Vetch, a character well known here as the partner in business of Con Douvovan. The accounts conflict very much. Some had the understanding that Vetch when last seen was in a wagon with another party with his head bowed and his hands apparently tied behind. The facts are as best our reporter can obtain that Vetch had mortgaged some property in which his title was not perfect and in other ways involved the family of his mother- in-law. These things created a row In connection with these the people have some definite notions concerning his whereabouts. The belief is he has been put out of the way .Curtis Courier. Shot in Bed. Last Friday the sheriff was called to Anselmo to hold an inquest over the body of North L. Overton who was shot in his bed some time Thursday night. The evi dence at the inquest was of such a nature that the sheriff arrested the wife of the dead man and brought her to Broken Bow for preliminary trial. She was arraigned Monday before J udge Kilgore but waived examination and was commit ted to jail without bail. Killing scrapes in Custer county are getting to be of too frequent occurrence and it will only be after the hanging of some murderer that this wholesale murder business will be stopped. The killing of wrong doers by officers in attempting their arrest is all right; but a regular hanging match would have a very salutary effect upon thugs and toughs when they were pre paring for a spree. Broken Bow Itepub-lican. Remains of a Mostodon. A monster bone partially petrified has been left at the Newx office by J. G. Hughes living eight miles east of here. It was found embedded in the sand on one of the banks of the North Platte river. Varied are the opinions expressed by different persons who examined it, as to what specie of animal it belonged. It is more than probable that the massive bone once bore the weight of the now extinct mostodon that was once an inhabitant of the great American desert. It measures about two feet in length, and at one end nearly ten inches in diameter or two and one half feet in circumference, and re. presents the bone of that part of the leg below the knee of the mastodon, or some other animal of monster proportion. Mr. H. intends when he can spare the time to further explore the premises where he made the find and may succeed tn exhuming the entire skeleton; tho parts secured have the appearance of being freshly broken.

Krxeitz. "V Died from a Dose of Lead. Another shooting Tuesday night about 6 miles north o Broken Bow. A party of robbers had been doing considerable plundering in the southwest part of tho county and the constables and citizens from several townships formed a posse and started in pursuit. Tuesday evening the robbers were overhauled in a canyon north of here by the posse, and ordered to throw up. This they refused to do and being in a wagon drawn by two good horses they started off on a dead run, preparing at the same time to resist all attempts made to arrest them. Seeing the robbers were heavily armed and meant business the constable preferred not to take any chances on the life of his men, and after calling several times for a halt from the robbers he ordered his men to fire. The posse armed with Winchesters, shot guns, etc., fired at the robbers, killing one and it is thought wounded the other. Tho man killed fell out of the wagon and the other one after running about on9 mile sprang from the wagon and cut loose a saddle horse from the wagon and made his escape. So far he has not been heard from though parties are in pursuit. Tho man that was killed is supposed to be either a mulatto or Indian about 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 160 pounds weight, large features, yellow complexiou, straight dark brown hair, thick and long upper lip, no beard or any indication of ever having raised one, and about 25 or 30 years old. All kinds of plunder was found in the wagon. Three rifles and several revol vers wero in their possession. Also about 3 pecks of catridges, and one catridge box marked '-Frankfort Arsenel." From the way the robbers were fixed it is evi dent they did mean not to surrender, and it is lucky that none of the party got hurt. Tho horses are supposed to have boen stolen southwest of here somewhere. One is a bay horse about 11 years old white nose, white hind feet, brand figure 8 on left shoulder, weicht about 1.100 ' - pounds ; the other horse is brown, about 11 years old, weight about 1.1000. Wednesday the body of the dead man was brought to town and an inquest hold The verdict returned was justifiable homicide from the hands of the constable and his posse. The body was buried in the Broken Bow cemetery Wednesday afternoon. Broken Bow Republican.

We are sorry to herald sucli a thing to the outside world, but wo are informed that last week the proprietor of a store in town fell asleep and the mice ate the seat put of his breeches.

The delegates to the nominating convention were chosen by ballot, and one of Stevens' turned the clock ahead sufficiently to shut out the votes of five men who would have given the nomina tion to A. Herr Smith instead of the great commoner. Chicego Tribune. A Newburg girl went to a grocery for a pound of saleratus, the other day, and after making the purchase, stepped upon the scales with the package in her hand. "Why, I've gained a pound!" was her delighted exclamation, and then, re membering that she had the saleratus in her hand, she dropped it in her pocket, and then attempted to adjust the weights so asjto show tho difference of a pound. After several minntes' effort she gave it up as a bad job, and left tho grocery satis fied that no reliance was to bo placed in its scales. Middletown Mercuru. Philadelphia special. Superintendent awler of the Reading railroad has issued a notice to all employes of the Schuylkill division that they must abstain from in toxicants whether on duty or not.

He says in his orders: "There is no business that needs level headed men more than railroading, both for the safety of the employes and the traveling public." The stories of the success of Buffalo Bill in London have not been one whit exaggerated. All the letters from Lon don are in the same vein. One letter rom Cody himself tells of his future plans.

The poor man finds now his limb has completely marbleized that ho does not walk with his accustomed ease and he is constantly worrying lest he stubs it against a stone and breaks off the toes. This is a warn ing to Kentucky water drinkers in the imestone region. Everybody knows that if he had adhered to bourbon, the bluo grass beverage, ho would have escaped petrification. Journal. The people of Atchison, Kansas, are experiencing a new phase of the prohibi movement Atchison is a city of perhaps 25,000 people. Owing to a depleted treasury, it is compelled to get along without street lights, police and fire de partment. The saloon license fomerly paid the expenses of these necessary ad juncts to metropolitan greatness. Now the revenue from the saloons is cut off and the citizen refuse to pay an occupa tion tax. According to the ultra nrohi- ' A bition theory a city without saloons has no need of police or lights.

Neff, Comedian, with Peck's Bad Boy Co., Denver, Col., March 1. 1887. Cham berlain'en Cogh Ilemedy is sold by F. H.Longley. The Des Moines Registor of yesterday says "that it is rumored that a new scheme or whiskey selling is soon to be sprung n this city, which is thought by the ori ginators to be law proof. They propose to work under the federal law by buying their liquor put up in half pint, pint and quart flasks in foreign countries and then ship them direct to Des Moines, where they will be sold without breaking the seal. They hope to gain immunity from the state law under the rule that imported goods when sold in the original package are exempt, and are now making ar rangements to open up a depot for the sale of their supplies. They will not find the road an easy one to travel, and will doubtless wish before through that they had confined their efforts to a country where the traffic is legitimate." Purify Your Blood.
